Just curious before i throw them up to them or pitch them thanks!
Most experts say not to, unless they are cooked. Mine have eaten them with no ill effects. BUT definitely don't give them ones from potatoes that have gone green.
I heard no.
I've always heard that raw potato peels are a no-no so they go to the compost pile. If they're cooked they go to the chickies.
good rule of thumb
if it gives YOU gas, it gives 'em gas and chicken should never have gas
What if I microwave them for several minutes until they're soft? Then its oke doke?
Quote:wellll potatoes dont give me gas sooo!
but that is a good rule of thumb to follow
Potatoes don't give me gas either. One time I gave my chickens some cooked beans and they loved them and I'm sure it kept them warm. I also heard that uncooked beans are a no no.
Our chickens have ate potatoe peals, many times and are still kicking and doin great.
Potatoes that have been exposed to light during storage sometime develop a greenish skin, due to a substance called solanine. It's not recommended that ANYONE eat the skins in that stage. They are fine to eat once peeled. I decided long ago to not give potatoes to my chickens, it's just starch anyway. I figure, why take the chance, when they compost so well.
